A very different view of the world. This highlights some major world issues. The atlas itself was in good condition and is informative.

The first half of this atlas shows the world in its true proportion, through a load of maps all of the same scale. The second half is crammed full of loads of maps telling you pretty much everything you wanted to know about the world - sea depth, prostitution levels, clean water levels, where languages are spoken, where certain wildlife is hunted for sport... the second half is where the book comes into its own. The first half, the traditional atlas part, is where the book is let down. Sure, it shows the Earth as it really is and that's great, but there are parts of the world that aren't mapped (oceans for example) and that means there are some islands missing. Also on the Peters wall map that I have, there is an island east of Argentina called "Shag Rocks" and it should be in this atlas on a certain page but it isn't. There aren't as many places listed on the maps as there is with other atlases I have seen, and also the atlas doesn't have my favourite trainspotter information such as lists of longest rivers, most populated cities, area of oceans, blah blah. My recommendation is to buy this and get the Times Compact atlas to complement it.

We showed an earlier Peter atlas to a friend and then donated this copy to her.

She has since purchased several copies for her family!

How the world SHOULD be seen. Excellent.
